The vision of Urban Arts is to give young people the tools to enable them to make positive life choices throughout their life journey. The Urban Arts project does this by delivering a message of personal safety through lyricism – poetry through music and introducing young people to the arts.
What we do
As part of the project, young people will have the opportunity to achieve an Entry Level 3 qualification and a Discover Arts Award. The creative outlet will be the experience of creating a lyrical piece of music within a recording studio as well as broadening their talents and experiences within their chosen art form.
Young people will be able to list their own skills and knowledge and will know how lifestyle impacts on learning development. They will be able to plan for and achieve short-term personal development goals. They will know own needs and wishes in different contexts, understand assertiveness skills and be able to interact with others.
Using the individuals personal musical and art influences, the project will encourage critical thinking through the exploration of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours, thus encouraging them to build self-confidence. This includes the sharing of knowledge and outlining what the rights and responsibilities are for individuals and others in their lives.
We have been awarded funding from Youth Music to deliver this programme with young people in our local community. For further information, please get in touch.

This song was written and performed by one of our previous students who decided to use this opportunity to speak out for other young people that may have experienced living in foster care.

This song was performed by a group of young women all experiencing difficulties within their lives at the time of attending Urban Arts. Stepping stone is a beautiful piece exploring relationships, resilience and progression.
